RITA 2010 Awards

The Romance Writers of America named their RITA Awards, for best published romance novels and novellas and their Golden Heart Awards, for best manuscripts, this weekend. Harlequin nabbed the largest number, winning four of twelve RITA’s.

The winner in the hot paranormal category is Kiss of a Demon King by Kresley Cole, part of the best-selling Immortals After Dark series. Earlier this year, the creators of the web site Smart Bitches, Trashy Books, told NPR that the series is the best representative of the genre, “full of Norse mythology and the women are just incredibly empowered and fascinating characters.”
